Ryan Reynolds Shares First Look at Josh Brolin as Cable in 'Deadpool 2'
Ryan Reynolds knows how to get a Monday going for Deadpool fans.
The actor shared the first official look at Josh Brolin as Cable in the upcoming Deadpool 2. This is the second Monday in a row the star has shared a look at one of the characters in the anti-superhero Marvel sequel.
"We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future. #PremiumCABLE," Reynolds tweeted.
Added Brolin on Instagram: "Now offering 25 percent off your next autopsy. ☠️ #youremine #deadpool"
Fans have gotten to see plenty of Brolin getting ready for the role, the Oscar-nominated actor sharing pictures and video of himself getting jacked in the gym. However, Monday was the first reveal of the character, which included the facial scars and a cybernetic eye.
A few minutes after the first photo of just Cable's face, Reynolds shared a second picture of the character's entire torso, which included his cybernetic arm and a whole lot of ammo.
Reynolds — a prolific social media user with more than 6.6 million followers — has been leaving little Deadpool teaser breadcrumbs the past few weeks as production got underway.
The first peek was a photo of Deadpool chilling out in front of the X-Mansion. Last Monday, Reynolds tweeted out the first official look of actress Zazie Beetz as Domino.
Deadpool 2 has a June 1, 2018, release date.
